Onion Dome Cable Hat Pattern

Been meaning to update some of my Cable Hat patterns. Yesterday I posted the Cables - Bulky Pattern, which is a great hat for someone just learning cables. It is in Bulky yarn on large needles and quick to work up. When I was a kid my dad gave me a wooden box from Russia it had colorful Onion Domes burned onto the top of the lid. Years ago I used that as inspiration for a hat in Aran weight. I was looking at the box the other day and thought the pattern would be perfect for Bulky weight yarn....

Honey Comb Hat in Fingering

Love those "left overs". I had lots of leftovers from the Ahmic Lake Pullover sweaters I have been knitting. So what to do with the leftovers.....

Today on our ski trip I picked up some balsam tips that had come off with the snow. The balsam scent is so much stronger when it is ice cold. Been busy making fingerless mittens. They are very handy when bringing...

Textured Hat

Textured Hat

Been meaning to work up a textured hat pattern, finally got around to it. I started with the Merino DK Singles, as I have several "leftover" balls laying around.  I love my leftovers. I get tired of working stranded work, so figured this would be something different and fun to do.  The sky is the limit, the possibilities are infinite.  This hat "hugs" your head comfortably. Plus it can easily be adjusted to multiple head sizes, but adjusting the rib height or changing needle sizes. As always feel free to let me know if you have any questions. Stay cool!...
